When it comes to outdoor fun, Heritage Park is Simpsonville’s star recreational attraction. Along with its popular CCNB Amphitheatre, hosting concerts and community events, the park features a wide array of amenities, including ballfields, playgrounds, picnic shelters and paved trails.

Its impressive baseball/softball complex includes six ballfields with batting cages, soft toss tunnels and a practice infield. The park also offers two modern, age-appropriate playground areas, trails for walking, running and biking and a working replica miniature steam train you can ride for just $2.

City Park is also a favorite with its large ADA-Inclusive playground, tennis and basketball courts, disc golf course, picnic shelters and Tater Shed outdoor performance space.

Two neighborhood parks offer more opportunities to burn some energy with the kids. Alder Park includes a basketball court, a field for soccer or flag football, and new playground equipment; College Street Park has a basketball court, baseball field and swing sets, a jungle gym and merry-go-round for the younger set.

For summertime fun, the destination of choice is Discovery Island Waterpark. It features a FlowRider for surfing and bodyboarding, a twisty lazy river, two water slides, kiddie slides, a four-tier water play structure and a leisure pool area along with concessions, party huts and cabanas.

Golfers have their choice of two well-liked courses. The scenic and secluded Fox Run Country Club is a par 72 layout with no homes on the course. Nine of the holes have water in play. Holly Tree Country Club is a George Cobb design, accommodating to golfers of all skill levels. Lakes and Glider Creek also bring water into play on nine of its holes.
